The Dallas Cowboys and Dak Prescott were unable to agree to a long-term deal before Wednesday's deadline.

Prescott will play the 2020 season under the franchise tag worth $31.4 million and will become a free agent again in 2021.

The Cowboys' organization and Prescott's agent, Todd France, opened negotiations on a multiyear agreement in spring 2019 but were unable to close the gap.

The sides didn't have any substantive talks since March when Dallas offered $34.5 million per season.
